One of the most satisfying endings to a series I've ever read. This series has been consistently good, and if you're a fan of Rick Riordan, I would definitely suggest you check this out! It's similar in style, but with Hindu mythology, which doesn't really come up too much in books like this and I found it super interesting!

Ash Mistry and the World of Darkness by Sarwat Chaddha

Well, its finally over! What can I say? This book is completely different from the first two in the series and feels as if it belongs to a completely different series. But thanks to the characters, Ash and Parvati who have succeeded in creating the Ash Mistry ambiance for reading. Anyways, the story changes completely and the burning question we readers had at the end of the second book are resolved and answered in the

I really, really enjoyed this series. Growing up, like many kids, I was totally into Greek and Roman mythology. Then I found Ancient Egyptian mythology and culture. Back then there were was very little YA and MG literature that I could get my hands on that featured good Ancient Egyptian content (I eventually started reading the Elizabeth Peters mysteries, which had a lot of romance and stuff that I wasn’t all that interested in) or even really Greek and Roman mythology and history. Now that Rick ...more

I'm sure this book would have made much more sense if I had read the previous ones, but all told I guess it was not too bad. Not sure which Ash/Ashoka we were supposed to be rooting for, and most of the God-lore was lost on me, but the story was quite well paced and a good enough read.

Not too shabby an ending, liked the parallels between timelines. Overall i would have loved to hear more from the gods' perspectives in the series!

Wonderful once more and sadly Ash's saga is completed, for now, sadly just a trilogy, unlike five books Percy Jackson series. This time around following the bombshell of the ending of the last book we find that Ash and Parvati were somehow sent to a parallel timeline where Savage has finally succeeded in his quest of forever youth and immortality and literally rules over the world through his charity work. And there is Ashoka too this universe's version of Ash and also Parvati's evil version cal ...more

Slow in the middle, (view spoiler) but the ending was really worth it. It was especially interesting to see Chadda play with time travel and the loss of Ash's powers. Overall, a great and very unique story and series. It's a shame this never got as much hype as Percy Jackson. I'm still a little confused myself how I ended up reading this series; I think I was bored and the vague memory of reading the Ash Mistry series, spec ...more

Almost 2 stars for me, but gave 3 because my 11 year old like it and the parallel timeline storyline made it more enjoyable. BUt, I am SO glad I have finally finished this series! It took FOREVER. Most likely because I didn't really enjoy it. Too much blood and gore and I never loved the Ash character or believed that the rakshasas could be walking among us. I was hoping for a Percy Jackson type feel, but besides the Indian mythology parallel, it just let me down. I was happy for the timeline me ...more

Closure done well. I loved everything about this especially the aspect of time travel. Sure the mythology can be comparable to Rock Riordan's Percy Jackson, but the author takes a completely different and unique turn with this book series that I love. Wish there were more but I'm also glad it ended on such a nice note.

I looooved the Ash Mistry trilogy (...and I'm way older than the target audience :P) The twist with the Indian mythology is unique and the author weaves in many explanations so that the reader doesn't get lost between all the gods and history.

The third book was the best of all as it had a lot of deep meaning. I loved the portrayal of both Ash and Ashoka to visualize the struggle with multiple identities and how life choices can affect your future. For me, the message of those lines is more impor

"All these centuries and yet it all comes down to this, a few moments beneath a dying sun."

This book is... dark, at times. And again, the comparison with The Power of Five pops up in my mind. That says a lot in terms of how dark it actually is. It's not an 'easy' book to read. Sure, it reads fast, but there are some scenes that can only be described as gruesome at the least - not something you'd expect when you start this series.
It's nice to have this sort of game where you see the old and t

Sarwat Chadda has lived and traveled throughout the world, from China to Guatemala. He’s been lost in Mongolia, abandoned at a volcano in Nicaragua and hidden up a tree from a rhino in Nepal. Not to mention being detained by Homeland Security in the US and chased around Tibet by the Chinese police. Maybe he just has that sort of face.

Anyway, now he’s trying to settle in one place and stay out of t
